The musical stage adaption of The Lion King has made history as one of the most bold theatrical projects of Disney Theatrical Productions. The musical pulled out all the stops with distinctive music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice, with other music from esteemed composers, including the legendary Hans Zimmer. The musical has captivated fans, everyone, across the world. It has a story akin to the 1994 animated film, but the stage adaptation has much more depth, the music has been given an African music approach, and the costumes are out of this world!

For this reason, it would almost be a sin to miss this remarkable musical, since it’s coming to San Francisco this winter! That means you get the opportunity on tickets, and instead of catching this Broadway legend in New York, you’re watching it right in your city! Keep in mind; the show never comprises quality. The Broadway critic of Entertainment Weekly wrote in his review, “The Lion King can make you fall in love with theater, no matter what theater it's in.” Indeed, the production has traveled all over the world. And now that it’s on its 26th year since premiering in 1997, it remains one of the best musicals.

“Where are you, really, anyway? The location is supposed to be a theater, a thoroughfare never thought of as a gateway to Eden. Yet somehow you have fallen into what appears to be a primal paradise,” says the New York Times’ Ben Brantly after attending the Broadway production in 1997.

Another critic, John Simon wrote, “Come to The Lion King with two pairs of eyes, one ear, and half a brain. You will be bombarded by some of the most stunning and spectacular sights theater can offer from before and behind, so eyes in the back of your head will come in handy.”

This winter, the Orpheum Theatre welcomes the touring story of The Lion King! The show on Sunday 17th December 2023 is guaranteed to deliver all the awe-inspiring things talked about by critics. The musical will take you on a trip to another world while in the comfort of your seat at the Orpheum Theatre!
